This CD-ROM contains volume 1-9 of the British Fern Gazette along with a listing of British ferns by E.J. Lowe. These volumes contain a wealth of information, not obtainable elsewhere, about the early members of the British Pteridological Society, their propagation methods and the ferns that they grew. Michael Hayward has hand edited the set of files to allow accurate searching with Adobe Reader and the original photographic illustrations have been enhanced.
British Ferns by E.J. Lowe (1891) is the most comprehensive listing of fern varieties then grown. Although the volume is fairly readily available, it is very difficult to search in its paper form, so a scanned and edited copy is included on the CD.
